Harry is a witch from a long line of power, an ancient line that’s one of the strongest left alive in their hemisphere. He can cast spells without a word if need be, fly on a broomstick, and has a black cat (a kitten, really) named Felix that is his animal familiar. He can shape galaxies in his cupped hands and can destroy them just as easily. He can choose exactly how to use his power, for encouragement and support, or for more nefarious causes if he wishes to.
And as fate would have it, he’s scared of haunted houses.
(Harry is a witch who carries around a stuffed pumpkin, Louis is a vampire with too much time on his hands, and their best mates Zayn & Niall aren’t exactly what they seem…)
“Louis’ trying to weigh the pros and cons of writing out satanic curses and possibly carrying through with a damnation to hell in the middle of their local diner when somebody’s fingers rudely snap around in front of his face.”
Or the one where Louis pines pathetically and miserably for his best friend who is inconveniently taken.
About a week after Harry started visiting this particular chat room, he was watching some kid argue with the whole room about football, personally disinterested as he tipped a bag of crisps into his mouth. He happily chomped on the crumbs, taking a swig from a glass of Ribena to wash them down, glancing at the screen and very nearly spat the squash back out again. His heart was pounding wildly. The display icon of the argumentative newcomer had caught his eye, and not in a good way. He gulped as he clicked the picture, and when it popped up in full resolution, his heart nearly fell right out of his arse. - Sixteen year old Harry Styles’ world turns upside down when he logs on to gay teen chat to discover somebody has stolen his photos and used them as their own.
Louis is the new secretary for the famous CEO Harry Styles, who has had a record for breaking hearts. Almost instantly, Louis hates the man yet lusts after him all together. So they make a deal to use each other for their own needs. But what happens when the CEO’s ice cold heart starts cracking?
Why Castiel is the world’s most underappreciated angel:
1. He’s the only angel even attempting to do his damn job.
What was the one thing God told the angels to do before he left? Oh yeah, that’s right. “Love humanity.”
For most angels, this very simple command seemed to get lost in translation very, very quickly. (Here, I would include images of all the humans whose eyes got needlessly burned out, but that’s just unnecessarily gory).
But while the other angels treat the human race with repulsion (i.g. Uriel, Zachariah, Bartholomew, Naomi) or at best, quiet indifference (i.g. Hannah), Castiel appears to be the only one who will invariably place humanity’s safety above all else. Not only that, he appears to be the only angel who legitimately loves humanity in general.
(And don’t even get me started on his love for “humanity.” That’s a topic for another time).
If you ask me, this is the reason God takes a special interest in Cas. It’s because Cas isn’t the only one diverging from the angels’ original mission: he’s the only one staying true to it.
You’ll never convince me this isn’t why Chuck keeps bringing Cas back. (That, and he obviously really ships Destiel).
2. He’s almost completely altruistic.
Despite the fact that they’ve have never actually formally thanked him for everything he’s done for them (which I’m just the slightest bit bitter about), Castiel continues to battle and suffer endlessly for Dean and Sam.
For one thing, he pulled Dean out of hell. I really can’t stress that enough. Saving someone from eternal damnation is kind of a big deal.
Then, in season six, he confronted Lucifer AND Michael in the cage to try to rescue his brother-in-law. Obviously, that didn’t work out too well for anyone involved, but again: he confronted two of the most powerful angels in the universe to try to rescue him. KIND OF A BIG DEAL.
In season eight, he was willing to spend eternity alone in purgatory to keep the leviathan away from Dean.
In season ten, he was willing to die horribly to avoid having to hurt Dean (unless it isn’t abundantly clear at this point, he REALLY FUCKING LOVES DEAN).
Most recently, in season 11, we see Cas single-handedly take on LUCIFER AND AMARA – the two most terrifying beings in the entirety of the supernatural universe – just to keep his precious boyfriend safe.
(I also think we should all take a moment to appreciate that he’s now called two of heaven’s most powerful and intimidating archangels “ass-butt.”)
And sacrificing himself in the hope that Lucifer could possibly defeat Amara and save the world was (while unfortunate for everyone) an incredibly selfless thing to do.
Don’t listen to Amara or Metatron or any of those other assholes, Cas. You’re a fucking hero.
3. Everyone underestimates him (and usually, it proves disastrous).
Bad things happen to people who underestimate Castiel. The only exception to this rule is Dean, who gets a free pass because they’re married.
(Oh really, Dean? Remember season five, when he sliced off Pestilence’s ring finger without the aid of any angelic grace? Or when he killed at least three angels in the beginning of season nine, despite the fact that he was completely human at the time?)
Let’s start with an obvious example: the writers.
When Cas was conceptualized, he wasn’t supposed to be a main character. He wasn’t even supposed to be a recurring character for more than six episodes. His only purpose was supposed to be introducing angels and biblical mythology to mythology to Supernatural, and providing a plausible explanation as to how Dean got out of hell. The writers only decided to keep him on for seasons five and six due to his immediate popularity within the fandom. Towards the beginning of season seven, the writers appeared to think Cas and most Biblical mythology had run its course, and arranged for him to be killed off. Ratings immediately plummeted, until they were basically forced to bring him back.
Speaking of writers, that brings us to our next example: Metatron, whose greatest mistake was that he underestimated Castiel’s intelligence. Seriously, at one point he compared him to a “mentally deficient puppy.” Rude.
(Although in fairness, he kind of does give off that impression).
The irony of Metatron’s defeat, however, was that Cas didn’t beat him in some grandstanding, epic battle. He outsmarted him, using the very same kind of PR warfare that Metatron had prided himself on.
For a slightly less “Meta” example (see what I did there?) we have Naomi. While she didn’t underestimate Castiel’s intelligence or power, she did sorely underestimate the strength of his love for Dean. This mistake would cost her the angel tablet, and ultimately result in the angels’ fall from grace.
Earlier still, we have his unfortunate alliance with Crowley. Now, Crowley is Supernatural’s smartest and longest-surviving villain for a reason: he’s never underestimated these “denim-wrapped nightmares.”
He did, however, make the mistake of thinking he could continuously manipulate Cas into doing his bidding without repercussions, a misjudgment that very nearly had him smitten.
Obviously, this didn’t work out much better for Cas – or anyone, for that matter, when his megalomaniacal alter ego reigned terror on the entire planet.
4. He actually DID prevent a second Biblical apocalypse.
This wasn’t properly addressed after season six, but Raphael made it abundantly clear that if allowed to rise to power, he would release Lucifer and Michael from the Cage and restart the apocalypse.
Perhaps the one “good” dead performed by Cas’s god persona (aside from disbanding the KKK, curing that blind homeless guy, and expressing his support of marriage equality) was that he succeeded in his mission to defeat Raphael. And by “defeat,” I obviously mean “blow to bits,” possibly out of left over bitterness from the end of season four.
(“SEE!? Exploding isn’t so nice when it happens to YOU, is it? Jerk.”)
Regardless of whether or not you think Raphael’s fate was deserved, it’s hard to ignore the fact that it did (at least temporarily) ensure that the Cage would remain shut. And while God!Cas and the leviathan did an irreparable amount of damage, I don’t think it came anywhere close to the amount of suffering or fatalities that would have been caused by a Biblical end of days.
5. The other angels set the bar really, really low.
Castiel is the Kevin McCallister of the angelic race. Literally everyone in the entire family is a fucking disaster, but the second something goes wrong, everything’s HIS fault.
I mean yeah, he’s made some large-scale blunders. But at least he’s never purposefully caused the apocalypse because his dad wasn’t home and he was hoping to get some time off of work.
Or nearly destroyed the planet because he got into a kindergarten-style slapping contest with his brother.
Or literally ruined the entire universe because he was jealous and mildly irritated with his father.
No wonder the only other sane angel got his ass out of there.
It’s no longer shocking to see Enjolras tired, but it still catches at some ridiculous urge in Grantaire that he doesn’t even have a name for. It makes him wish he owned a big pile of quilts, and also that it wouldn’t be super weird to invite other people to come nap in his giant quilt-nest for a while. -World Ain’t Ready
This is one of the very first things I sketched in my weird quest to illustrate the entirety* of World Ain’t Ready- it’s a little up and to the right of this in my sketchbook.
*note: i do not plan to illustrate literally all of world ain’t ready, despite the evidence to the contrary

I also plan to do a kidheart member blogs and kidheart friendly blogs lists! But those will take more time, as I have to message people to make sure it’s safe for them to be on the list. So if you are a kidheart or kidheart friendly blog, feel free to message me if you want to be on those lists!
ok but i have this headcanon of harry that he’d be so good as a kindergarten teacher. he’d set time aside every week for ‘interpretive dancing’ and would have all the kids get in a circle, and they would each take turns doing their best dance move. he’d have a record player in his classroom and would play paul simon records, and would tell his kids in class how important it is to learn about all the greats in music. he’d have dress up day, and when little zachary comes in dressed as a princess, hiding in the back of the classroom, harry would sit him down and tell him he’s the prettiest princess he’s ever seen, and would readjust his crown and let him sit in the ‘teacher chair’ all day. harry would spend time talking about how important the environment is, and would assign each kid in class a tiny little plant that they’d have to take care off for a week. harry would have a little baking class on the first friday of every month, and would invite one parent to come assist him as they bake brownies, little tea cakes, cookies, and cupcakes. he’d be so loving, so patient and so kind.
If Jet gets a new look every year so should my wife’s oc Diamis, yea?
Diamis hails from a gladiator styled kindergarten near Saturn. There off color, cracked, or shards are fed to incubators to make smaller caret slightly imperfect synthetic diamonds. These diamonds are trained to be almost brainless devout warriors. Originally Diamis was cracked and scheduled for mulching by her siblings. However she managed to escape to earth! Jet tries to teach her that breaking gems into shards or powder is wrong. It’s a work in progress…
Her true name is Facet-4W8S Cut-9PD. I thought it might make it fun to stand for something so it means 48 Facets of White Synthetic, with a 9th Generation Princess Cut.
AU in which you have really bad cramps and 10k is a sweetheart
“The red storm is approaching.” Doc says, holding his hands up in a ‘stay away’ gesture. You narrow your eyes, and scoot further towards him, moving towards the edge of the truck bed. His mouth drops, and he feigns horror. “The red storm will take your head off.” Addy says, climbing out of the cabin, twirling her knife in her hands. “Oh no, are you under its control as well?” He asks. “Warren is too.” You mutter, sliding onto the asphalt parking lot. Murphy gets out, and exchanges a look with Doc. “I vote all the girls get their own room.” Murphy says. “I second that.” Doc says. “I, surprisingly, agree.” Vasquez says, slinging his bag over his shoulder. Warren crosses her arms, and clears her throat, coming over to the other side of the truck. 10k climbs down off the roof, coming to stand behind you, a hand brushing your arm.
all the diamonds you have here, it hits louis now, how fucking close to the precipice they’re standing. or, an au feat. investment banking and children.
all the lights are full of colour, So, fast-forwarding eight years from the day Harry met Louis, he is now a twenty-seven year old owner of one of the most up-and-coming eating establishments on the London restaurant scene, father of two wonderful boys and… separated from his husband. Now, that last part definitely was never a part of the original plan. Or, Harry and Louis are separated, but for the sake of their two sons, they choose to spend Christmas together. It may just lead to a Christmas miracle.
I need home (our tangled bones), Louis runs a record label and Harry is his daughter’s new nanny. Over the course of a year, Harry helps Louis learn what it really is to be a father and somehow they find an unexpected home in each other. Or, the kid fic where Louis wants to make Harry a star, Zayn just needs everyone to stop being stupid, Niall laughs his arse off at everything, Liam attempts to keep things in order and Harry takes a chance.
Just Breathe, It’s a portrait worthy of hanging over the fireplace: two incredibly handsome young men and their equally adorable children, all shined up and polished, politely posed and smiling, a split second perfectly captured for eternity. As a photographer, 18-year-old Harry loves a good snapshot, a well-preserved moment in time. He also likes kids an awful lot, has always wanted to raise a family with a loving and supportive partner of his own. Meeting Louis, a 25-year-old father of two, after a night out seems like the perfect realization of all of Harry’s dreams really. Louis, however, knows that one photograph can’t begin to tell an accurate story of parenthood, of the joys and challenges of constantly living with wonderful, yet sometimes incredibly odd and frustrating, little humans. He’s already had a partner who couldn’t handle the pressures, one who left Louis with a mountain of doubt that anyone else will ever want to join his cracked family. Falling in love is as easy as releasing the shutter. Developing the entire picture may take a little more time and effort than either of them expected.
Marking Up The Atmosphere, At the age of twenty, Harry deals with things expected to occur at his age: student loans, instant meals, electricity bills, and the constant, incessant presence of never ending coursework. That, and the job of raising his six year old daughter and avoiding the charm of a young, successful, and very off-limits Louis Tomlinson.
nothing else but us right here, Louis sighs and gives himself a mental pep talk as he smooths his jumper down over his hips. He can do this. He can resist the draw of Harry Styles, because he is a responsible, mature adult, and as much as he wants to tangle his fingers in that mess of hair and map those ridiculous tattoos with his tongue, he does not want to get his daughter’s favorite teacher fired.
Standing on the Edge of Forever, “So let me get this straight. You took Mr. Squiggles from the classroom habitat, took him with you on your fieldtrip to the zoo, and released him in the aviary?” Harry Styles is a single father, just trying to keep his life organized after losing his husband four years earlier. Between his daughter, Liam’s hellion twins, and Sophia throwing him into any romantic tangle she can think of, life gets a little crazy. Of course, everything changes the moment Lo and the twins get interested in their school musical, The Wizard of Oz. Because the new director, Louis Tomlinson, is just about the most attractive man that Harry has ever seen. Featuring adorable Dad Harry, hotshot actor Louis, three sassy kids, a badass Sophia Smith, and a Liam who just wants all their kids to be well behaved.
we are honey and the bee, It isn’t his fault though, it is entirely the fault of whichever gods thought it would be a good idea to taunt Louis by dangling a curly haired boy in front of him with a mouth that can’t possibly be as soft as it looks, a mouth that requires further inspection with Louis’ own mouth. Unfortunately, Louis absolutely cannot do that, because it would go against all rules and guidelines in the Golden Handbook of Nanny and Employee Etiquette that he’s pretty sure exists. au where harry plays rugby at uni, louis needs to hire a nanny, and life is one big cliche.
we took the slow way, liam and louis teach kindergarten and harry styles has a kid and zayn is a dj and it’s all very complicated for various reasons.
